Episode 303 - Something Mailbag This Way Comes

Before we jump into the next chunk of this arc we wanted to take a moment to answer y’all’s burning questions! Thank you all so much for writing in. We always love doing these eps since it gives us a chance to wild out a bit. Next episode we will I guess go into some sort of worse place than Prison Planet so that is something nice to think about. I think one of the planes was entirely on fire? Working on our tans would be nice, I guess… Anyways I don’t think there are any controversial questions this time (Pie is better than Cake) but feel free to scream at your listening device along with us.



A Note: I try to spell everyone's name as accurately as I can. Since, I don't know the names, I might get them wrong. Sorry if you see your's or a loved one's name on here, and it's misspelled. Also, I am not trying to write down verbatim what each person said in his/her/their questions, but they are in quotes. It's confusing, but it's fine. I'm paraphrasing.

  • Question 24:
    • Marry/Fuck/Kill Wed/Bed/Behead NPC's (Specificly, Ros, Adira Harper, and Ashayara Dayne, then they try to figure out who they should do for three dudes. It's a lot of that for a while)
      • I'm not gonna get too deep into this one. It's all over the place

    • Tim, would you do a Sly Flourish?
      • He does. (Tears)


  • Lahni has never been in the Jerk Yert
